Jalandhar, July 1

A day after The Tribune highlighted increasing incidents of cyber crimes in the district, DC Ghanshyam Thori, under Section 144 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, directed all cyber cafe owners to maintain a record of identity of customers visiting their cafes to use the Internet. The record must contain the name, address and telephone number of the customers, the order said.

Cautioning the cyber cafe owners, the DC said anti-social elements might use their facilities to mislead security and investigation agencies, create panic and endanger security of the country. Thori directed them to not allow entry to those who fail to establish their identity.

“Customers must also sign in the register kept for the purpose and provide a copy of one identity card and a photo. Moreover, the activity server log should be preserved in the main server with its recording for at least six months. In case any activity of a visitor is found suspicious, the owner must inform the police and submit all record about the person,” the DC said. The order would remain in force till August 26.
